This past fall I decided to photograph the new(ish) Home Depot on North Halsted in Chicago's Linocln Park neighborhood.
The site was completed in 2003 and is the first 2-story Home Depot in the nation. It was built on a previously large vacant lot (approx. 150ish feet wide) with prime frontage on the North Halsted commercial corridor. The parking is located in a garage on the upper two floors of the building and the building is built to the lot lines.

Next door to a slightly older commercial development. Helps with sense of scale.
Adjacent 19th century commercial urban fabric. Also helps with sense of scale.
